Go ahead and call them, the guy who answers will begin by asking you if you want quality work or crappy work done.

He will later explain the reason why he asks this question is because potential customers waist a lot of his time when they shop around and find someone who will do the work for less. etc. And he also complains that these cheaper electricians always do terrible work, so he is often called to fix their errors.... but wait a minute...

Then wouldn't professional electricians be happy there are so many unprofessional electricians out there creating more work for the professional ones? Customers eventually want something done right after all.

These guys make every excuse in the book to charge you more money. Their work is fine, Ive seen it.

The point is there are plenty of other licensed, experienced, electricians who will work for alot less.

Example, for some residential work I needed (upgrade for more power) these guys estimated it would cost me 5 grand. I found someone on craigslist the next day who estimated it would only cost 1 grand. I hired him, he did the work, then an electric company rep came to inspect, and it passed.

Now if I had hired target, would the work be 5 times better simply because I paid them 5 times more then other competent electricians? I doubt it.

I never pay an electrician more then 17 bucks per hour for labor, and there always plenty of them lining up to give me estimates.

So when you are talking to one over the phone, mention upfront what you pay. Don't let them tell you what their work is worth, because there ***plenty** of out work licensed electricians who have bills to pay.

Top Notch Service: Had Sean install a security system for our business. The work was done when we said it would be, he even came back the next day to re adjust the camera angles. Its evident that customer service is important to target electric. I would recommend this service to other business owners.

I had Target Electric come out to my house to look at the outlets that were getting electricity, but for some reason, no appliances worked in them....They came out for two hours, charged me for the two hours, did not fix anything. They said there was a problem in the wiring in the walls and it could take anywhere from 1-20 hours to find the problem, and they would need to get into the drywall. Well, I dont know if this diagnosis has anything to do with me being a single young female...but I had an SDSU engineering student take a look at the outlets, within 20 minutes the problem was fixed and they laughed when they heard what TARGET ELECTRIC had told me. My advice...If you are a female, dont use this company...they completely took advantage I was naive and a young female who knew nothing about electric work.

We own two pre-owned car dealerships in San Diego - one in the El Cajon Blvd. area, another in Clairemont. We needed service and repair work done on our outdoor lighting - both the high pressure sodium lights on a 220 volt circuit and security lighting on motion sensors in our detailing area.

We got several bids and chose Target Electric in San Diego. They gave us the best bid and we got very personalized service from Sean McCauley the owner of the company. We found Target to be prompt, clean, honest and price competitive. If you need a great lighting and electrical contractor for commercial work, I highly recommend them.

We wanted to add a hot tub and a saunna to our home in San Diego, but our old electrical box wasn't up to the task. We called Target Eelctric, and the owner, Sean McAuley, came out the next day and gave us a free estimate that was very reasonable! The work was done quickly, cleanly, and without disrupting our household!
We now have brand new 220 amp service, and we love the results!
Target has also put in new ceiling fans for us and we plan to have them hook up our tv as a monitor for our computers!
.We recommend Target Electric, because they really are a full-service, one-stop shop for all things electrical!

Electrician Poway security lighting

We live on a large piece of land in rural Poway and menacing teenagers like to terrorize our livestock ? . Target Electric installed motion sensor security lights and a video surveillance around the perimeter of the property. Needless to say, the problem has ceased and they??ve moved on to newer victims, hopefully not my Poway neighbors! But seriously, Target Electric did a great job with a really high tech solution to a simple country problem in Poway.

Phone Lines and Jacks with Cable Television La Jolla

When we bought our house in La Jolla we didn??t have one working phone jack in the whole place. The only thing we could do is use our cell phones for internet and phone for weeks! I went to the internet and called a few electrical contractors. When we called Target Electric, the owner Sean McAuley came out to La Jolla to give us a free estimate within 3 hours of my call. After all was said and done we had a phone jack in every room, cable jacks, and computer hook ups. The price was fair and the wire and jacks are very clean. I recommend them to all my neighbors in La Jolla.

Thank You Sean

Monster Home Office, Data Network And Phone System La Mesa

I had a monster data and phone office network I wanted to build in my home located in the new community on the edge of La Mesa. I was a computer programmer for quite some time so I had an idea of the Monster office network with all the trimmings and had saved for it. I did my research of electrical contractors in La Mesa and surroundings and a number of the calls I made were to electricians that didn't sound like they knew what I needed.Target Electric was one of the only contractors that was knowledgeable and it showed when I hired them. This network looks awesome and there is never any problem with connections at all. I think I now have the coolest network in La Mesa :)

Home Rewire San Diego

After blowing my last fuse on my old breaker panel I was fed up! I called Target Electric and had them come out to my home in San Diego and help me. Turns out I had knob and tube wires that were about to burn me down. I have dealt with other electricians and contractors in my line of work and Sean and his crew where just great. The price he gave me after a free estimate was very fair. All my receptacles and lights are now grounded and there are a couple new shiny electrical panels around. Call this electrician for any electrical issue in San Diego - you won??t regret it. The work looks great and I feel a lot safer.

Del Mar Electrical Upgrade

My Wife and I purchased our new home near the coast in Del Mar. We added a few new appliances and wanted to add a 50 amp Jacuzzi and have our kitchen receptacles upgraded. We quickly noticed that our electrical panel was extremely old and was not capable of handling any other circuits. Sean with Target Electric was one of the bidders for the job. We heard of him through our friends who also live in Del Mar. Sean and his electricians had a competitive price and the customer service and attention to our needs was met better then the other bidders by far.

Thanks Sean!

I was looking for an electrical contractor in Rancho Penasquitos because we were adding a 50 amp spa and our main service panel was too small. A lot of the houses built in Rancho Penasquitos, Poway. Rancho Bernardo and Carmel Mountain were built around the same time and we were surprised to learn that to save money when these homes were built, the electricians in San Diego used aluminum wiring, which can be a potential fire hazed. My father has used Target Electric for a number of his investment properties and they came highly recommended. They upgraded our service panel to a 200 amp service, removed all the aluminum wiring, replaced it with copper and even replaced a few outlets free of charge. Great honest service and I highly recommend them to my friends.

We wanted to upgrade the interior lighting in our home in La Jolla and were referred to Target Electric by our friends who rent out vacation property in Del Mar and Solana Beach. We wanted to add recessed can lights and ceiling fans and a home entertainment system. We were impressed because the company owner came in, was able to give us a quote the same day for the work, and Target did a superb job. They mounted a 60 inch plasma screen over our fireplace, and it looks gorgeous. All the wires for the speakers and components were hidden behind the walls, as were all the cords for power. The new circuit that was added supports the can lighting and ceiling fans.
We were able to save money with target Electric??s quote, and didn??t have to give up anything.
